Men are hard to shop for, am I right? At least the man in my life is! I love him to death, but it’s so hard to find him a gift he really and genuinely wants. That’s why this Christmas I needed a “giftervention” to help me out and I found it at Gift Card Mall.
Gift Card Mall is a website where you can purchase many, many different gift cards from the comfort of your home. You can also purchase from Gift Card Mall in-store at the following stores: Ahold, Giant Eagle, Vons, Safeway, Shaw’s, Acme, Kroger, Hy-Vee, Food Lion, Albertson’s, and Hannaford.
Gift Card Mall is easy to use and allows you to easily browse to find the absolute perfect gift for the one you love. I was genuinely surprised by the variety gift cards they offer and how easy it is to purchase one from the website. Since my husband is a gamer, it was a no-brainer to purchase an xBox Live Gift Card for him for Christmas!
My next step was to figure out how best to give him his gift card. I didn’t want to just hand it to him, I wanted to give it to him in a special way. As I thought about ways to give him his gift card, I came up with 8 different ideas to use that are manly enough for your man. Try one this Christmas!
How to Give a Gift Card From Gift Card Mall:
1. Through a Treasure Hunt.
Have you ever done a treasure hunt? You know you write out clues and it leads the person to the next clue and the next until the last one leads you to the “treasure” or gift. This a great way to make giving a gift fun and special. You could do it with your man privately or on Christmas morning while the whole family watches!
2. As an Ornament on Your Christmas Tree.
Ornaments are a great way to hide your gift card until Christmas or just make them look even better! You could even hang your gift by itself on the tree and see if anyone notices!

3. In His Stocking.
This is one idea almost every Christmas! I love to put a gift card at the very bottom of his stocking all the way into the deepest part and then I pile everything else on top. It’s usually unexpected and a surprise because he doesn’t see it until I tell him it’s there.
4. In a Gift Bag.
Okay so this may seem like an obvious idea, but there are so many fun ways to do this! You can start by picking the size of your gift card. If you want to be playful, find the biggest gift you can and put the gift card all the way at the bottom. This is such a tease for your man! Next, find a gift bag that plays into your man’s personality. There are many options out there so have fun with it.
5. Hide it in a Journal or Book.
Does your man use a journal or small notebook? Does he have a favorite book he just has to have? Hide your gift card in between the pages of a book or journal and then wrap up the book in Christmas paper and wait for him to find the gift card at a later date!
6. In a Gift Box
I love gift boxes because there are so many different kinds! I found this cute gift box at Target and I love how perfect it is for a gift card! If you’re looking for a DIY project, you can get instructions on making your own gift box here: DIY Agate Gift Box. You can it under the tree as is or wrap it up with wrapping paper and top with a nice bow.
7. In His Wallet or in a New Wallet.
Hide your gift card gift in his wallet for him to find or better yet, add it to a new wallet you buy for him. There are so many nice wallets for men, but here are two of my favorites that are sure to make his day! Minimalist Leather Wallet | Personalized Fine Leather Wallet
8. In a Christmas Card.
Sure, Christmas cards may be overrated, but they can also be a genuine and sweet way to give a gift card. Find the perfect Christmas card for your husband. Write a love letter to him inside. Put it in an envelope and stick on the tree or put it in a gift bag or gift box. Your man is sure to love how personal this gift truly is!
So what do you think? Will you use one of these fun ways to give a gift card this Christmas? If so, be sure to check out Gift Card Mall’s xBox Live Gift Card or any other gift card they have to give your man the best Christmas yet!
